twins on mocabee creek

These two teeswaters were waiting for us in the barn yesterday morning.  Both Ewes, strong and healthy. Each one of these babies is almost twice the size of Malia.  That girl in the front is what the teeswater breed is supposed to look like. As our percentage of Teeswater genetic info is infused into the flock, more and more of the Teeswater look will come out in the lambs.  A Teeswater basically has crazy long-long wool and blue/black faces and feet. I'll have to double check the numbers but I believe these twins are about 60% .  Anyway, here's a couple more photos of the newest babies (names to follow).
... if only noses were nipples, and snot was milk...
